TR08 and Sequentail Tom/ Casio Rz1 query

Hi guys...how is it that two old drum machines can connect to an Atari 1040 and have there midi notes recorded and played back with no issues and that doing the same simple in and out midi connections with the TR08 it does not play back the internal sounds.

R8 and 505 virgo four

Hi all....I've been studying virgo fours sound recently.

They use a Roland R8 and a TR 505 together on there live shows and I was wondering about the reason for this choice of drummies being put together.
I have my suspicions and was wondering if any of you do the same sort of thing.

Re: If you were doing Chicago house what synths

Hinotori....Your comments were spot on...thank you ever so much for your comments....Virgo Four came to the rescue and I am now a proud owner of a Juno 2, which I got hold of only 4 days after I learnt this was the synth I had been searching for. The Juno 2 has the dark haunting sound which wanders ...

Re: Proteus 2500 midi port failed

Thank you Rasputin....was just about to do the factory reset but didn't want to...had cables running all over the place and somehow I've got going, thank goodness it was like waiting for the DFS sale to end. I thought the midi connector had failed at the back of the unit bit it hasn't. Now all I hav...

Re: Alesis microns multitimbral

Cheers Meatball....after researching and a bit of delving yesterday I got the twang of it...yes you need to go into set ups to go multi timbral. I did find however that I had to turn off midi thru on my Atari sequencer while I loaded the sounds on to the set up as I wasn't able to hear anything from...

Alesis microns multitimbral

Hi all...read the manual about multitimbral but can't seem to get it into action...do I have to go into a set up to get it to operate...I'm using it with an old Atari 1040.
Would like to know if a current owner or ex owner had the same problem...cheers

Re: MIDI cc s on an Atari 520

Sorry meatball should have said cubase v3...I'm thinking of getting a novation impulse 25 to play my proteus 2500 and hopefully it will also send midi cc to my Atari

Re: Best midi controller for my proteus 2500

Thanks for your reply meatball. I have tried turning the knobs on the proteus as you say because I have positioned the rack unit within reaching distance, but the Atari is not playing back my knob movements at present. The proteus is such an advanced unit that I very much doubt that it's not sending...

Best midi controller for my proteus 2500

Hi Guys....could you recommend the best midi controller for my emu proteus 2500. I am not using any laptop or software. I just want to be able to send midi data to my Atari with knob adjustments. I need something very basic and not a massive board as I have little space. Any advise welcome thank you.

Yamaha PSS580 midi cc messages

HI all.....I'm wanting to record my proteus 2500 knob movements into my Atari but I'm not getting anything back. Would I be right in saying that I think it could be my basic YAmaha PSS580 s fault as It may not be sending midi cc messages out to my Atari. I have set every possible receive on, on the ...

Re: Swing on tr707 maximum

Thanks Meatball....Really appreciate your explanations. I'm trying to work with hardware only...no MPC stuff just the TR drummies to get authentic results. When I listen to most house even early chicago house the hi hats are so so close to the kick, in order to get that speed going in the track. I w...

Re: Swing on tr707 maximum

Very interesting stuff......I'm thinking that at the time of the TRs were there sequencers even around then that could do this. The 707 cannot be programmed over a sequencer either, so I guess that you either put up with the swing you got or employed another drummie... There is not much in it when I...
